Top 5 Best Ramjet Transformers Toys
Ramjet is the next seeker/conehead we look at in this series of lists. Since many of these molds have already been visited in the past, the blurbs for each will be rather brief. While writing the lists for the coneheads, what I did find interesting was that each of them had at least one toy which is unique to them. Like this first one here...
5. Transformers Generation 2 Ramjet
Interestingly enough, this variant of the G1 seeker mold was first done for Ramjet, with Starscream coming after. It featured new firing missile launchers and a sound effects box, along with a rad G2 deco.
4.Transformers Masterpiece Ramjet
While I am far more lenient on the conehead version of the MP mold, due to all the extra retooling you get for each of the coneheads' unique wing patterns, I have to address the elephant in the room. The initial batch of Masterpiece Ramjet toys were misassembled the the point of not being able to convert the toy. Paying $200 for a dated mold is already not fun but for it to have such bad QC is shameful. But the toy did get corrected and it since retailers were told to keep the bad copies, they could have been obtained for really cheap by any fan willing to try to fix it themselves. So good news for some in a sea of bad news. MP Ramjet being on this list takes none of that QC in consideration and looks at the toy as intended and as I hope he is in your collection. And what he is, is fine. I like the retooling, love that jet mode, love that secret door paneling on the wings that rotates, I like the step of flipping the cockpit chest to be more screen accurate, and I loathe the giant dong it gives him and the other coneheads.
3. Transformers Classics Ramjet
I really like the classics version of the mold for the coneheads over the seekers for the lack of kibble behind the head in robot mode. That's something even the (better) Earthrise mold couldn't do. And, as with the other coneheads, Hasbro does go all out by giving Ramjet the different wings he should have.
2. Transformers Universe Ramjet
This is an absolutely gorgeous looking Transformers toy. That deco is slick. While the white element is part of the G1 deco, this set just kicks it up a notch with adding a lot of blue highlights making this the most unique deco on the list (yeah, even more than that G2 one, purple ain't that rare a colour for bad guys). Plus this mold comes with all the extras we got from the Skywarp retooling of the original Armada Starscream mold. Plus this Toysrus Exclusive boxset came with a bunch of minicons for added fun.
1. Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise Ramjet
This mold rocks. It took an excellent mold as a basis and made it the right size, and added the necessary articulation. It's the ideal mode to collect now to have the full array of seekers on your shelf, and at the right scale.
Transformers Club Exclusives G2 Ramjet and Selects G2 Ramjet
The G2 colours were pretty rad and I find it fun that they keep coming up with this toy. Now we have both the Classics and Earthrise mold with this particular deco.

But the 5 listed are good too, I guess. Just a shame Amazon was trusted to distribute the definitive Ramjet. Bloody scalpers.

Dang, I really should get Henkei Ramjet, I forgot about that extra detailing on Classics Ramjet's alt mode, since I've displayed them all in bot mode for so long.
Good list, I'd never heard of the MP misassembly before. I guess I'm waiting on all the retools of MP-mark-3 Starscream before considering any more Seekers that scale.

This list was made month ago, as was the chosen time to post it. But yeah, the Cyberverse toy has come out since and it is not great, definitely not better than any on this list.

Anyway, good list! A shame as has been mentioned that ER Ramjet is nigh-unobtainable, though I do quite like the hilariously loud G2 colours and am tempted to pick him up.

That's an awesome first Transformer to own. The G1 mold is represented somewhat with the G2 version being on the list (would have been rather redundant to include the G1 toy too). I do find the G2 version more important for Ramjet compared to his seeker brethren since it gives him something extra the others didn't have. Plus, it's a pretty great deco that really sets him apart.

Evil Eye wrote:Ramjet is probably my favourite of the Coneheads. Always loved his colours, and his personality as "the idiot who likes to use midair ramming as a tactic" is hilarious. A shame he gets the shaft in a lot of media (including going into a wannabe Starscream in his spotlight in IDW for some reason).
I'm just gonna second this. he's got a hilarious fighting tactic that almost makes him endearing, and he featured heavily in one of my favorite season-two episodes, "A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court'.
Anyway, good list. Although I think number two should've been number one.

Why they just made Universe/Armada Ramjet's minicon another Thunderclash (or was he actually sharing with Skywarp?) when he should've obviously been named "PROTON" is beyond me.o.supreme wrote:Roger approves of this list

That's fair, and yeah, he was a great first TF. Had my eye on Soundwave but we had to wait a week. No soundwave but there was this glorious, striking white jet with dark red wings. He won me over!
